Archie Ray Marquez off ShoBox card

Junior lightweight prospect Archie Ray Marquez (11-0, 8 knockouts) was forced to withdraw from his scheduled eight-round bout with Marvin Quintero (20-3, 16 KOs) this Friday due to a severe abdominal muscle pull that occurred during a sparring session last week. The Albuquerque native’s bout was the opener to Showtime’s ShoBox: The Next Generation telecast from the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, Calif.

The ShoBox card is now a doubleheader featuring Luis Franco vs. Leonilo Miranda in a 10-round featherweight bout and Lateef Kayode vs. Nicholas Iannuzzi in a 10-round cruiserweight bout.
